I wouldn't be surprised if we made a run to the FINALS... Then again, I wouldn;t be shocked if we lost to CHI in 5.
LOL. They asked Dantoni why he played Anthony Carter. he said because he said he could guard Wade.. Clearly he wasn't lying..
Billups is the ****ing man. Anthony Carter, Shawne Williams, And Billy Walker had some clutch plays. Didn't it feel great to have some options down the stretch? Eddie House sucks
AC just got arrested, they found him on his way back to NY with millions of dollars and a championship ring.
On further inspection the police removed Wade from his pocket and no charges were brought.
What a finish. Billups comes up big again. Melo and Stat kept us in the game. Horrendous defense in the first half. Very Sloppy game. Probably the best finish to a half we had in a very long time. We have to improve our defense. Our defense was much better in the second half but why can't they do it consistently throughout the whole game? Also what was that play out of the timeout by Dantoni??? Walker gets the ball inches from the baseline? Your asking for him to step out. SMH. But all in all what a tremendous win for us as we're coming together and building some chemistry. Amare with the seal in block on Lebron out of everyone. Can't get better than that. Go Knicks!
Bet Wade is glad 2 get out of that Mental hospital he was in tonight, Cause AC put him in a straitjacket!
Our bench outscored their 19-15. Doing that in MIA is impressive.
Our BIG-3 outscored theirs: 61-59
Our supporting cast bested theirs: 30-27.
Knicks won rebounding war: 43-42.
Knicks edged MIA from the free throw line, going 21-23 while MIA went 16-22.
MIA had 18 turnovers. We had 16.
MOST IMPORTANT STAT: MIA scored 34 in the 1st quarter... then only 52 for the rest of the game!
This is why NY won... despite shooting 8-30 from downtown, and MIA besting NY shooting 43.2 from the field while we shot 38.8.
You know what makes this even more sweet than usual?
Did you see those interviews with LeBron and Wade and Bosh all saying about how it would be hard for the Knicks and how they'd struggle at first like they did and although they said we'd get there, there was a real arrogance like they were talking down to us.
Well, I wonder what they've got to say now.
They were talking like they'd won a championship. You've won ****.
